Kathmandu

— 4 nights
Once synonymous with the mysterious and inaccessible Shangri-La, today Kathmandu draws an ever-increasing number of tourists, catering to independent travelers of various budgets.
Get in touch with nature at Adrenaline & Extreme Tours and River Rafting & Tubing. Step off the beaten path and head to Kathmandu Durbar Square and Kopan Monastery. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Patan Museum, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kumari Chowk, and admire the striking features of Hanuman Dhoka.

With everything from snowcapped mountains and vast grasslands to dense tropical forests, Nepal represents one of the world's most ecologically diverse destinations. A trip to Nepal takes visitors to an ancient land situated between India and China, both of which influence the region's culture, cuisine, and religious traditions. Despite the country's natural appeal, commercial tourism in Nepal remains a relatively new industry and most of the area lies unspoiled and undiscovered by foreigners. Ideal for travelers interested in pushing their physical abilities to the limit, Nepal contains most of the world's tallest peaks, including the legendary Mount Everest.
